Today, U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) voted in support of taking the first step to repeal Obamacare and to start the process of reforming our nation’s failed health-care system.

“Obamacare has failed and the American people have spoken,” Luetkemeyer said. “It has failed individuals, families, and small businesses across our state and Congress has responded to this failure by taking the first steps to repealing this broken law. The numbers are staggering. Average annual family premiums in the employer sponsored market have increased by roughly $4,300 and now total more than $18,000 annually and individual premiums are up 27 percent. Since 2010, 80 rural hospitals have been forced to close their doors across America – and there are many more closures on the horizon. These numbers, and many more, speak for themselves. Obamacare is a failure and is on the path to destroying health-care in America. House Republicans will not stand by and let this happen. Today’s vote represents the first step in repealing this law and sets in motion the multi-step process of reforming our health-care system to make it work for all Americans.”

Today’s resolution provides instructions to the authorizing committees of jurisdiction to produce and report legislation providing savings, which the repeal of Obamacare provides.
